Blessed Are They Who Mourn: Expect Comfort!

Good evening dear reader,
As I write there is an almost full moon rising over the hill opposite my home in this little Welsh valley. It is shining and beautiful in a summer sky that is not quite dark. The day has been hot, hot, hot. Yes, here in Britain we are enjoying a heatwave. As I glance at the bright pearl I want to phone my father and tell to go and have a look at it. And he would have too. With great enthusiasm. But I can't phone him as... he died eight weeks ago. And I miss him. Terribly. And there is not a thing I can do about it except to get on with my life and try to do my best and be thankful for each new day.


My day has been a good one though. My publisher has shown great interest in my new book, I am happy to report. It is a book on prayer which will guide the reader into their own way of praying and open up real communication between them and God. I hope that it will soon be out there in the world and that you will enjoy reading it. I will keep you posted on that one.

Earlier this evening I interviewed my dear friend and fellow Christian author, Pauline Lewis, who told me about some wonderful experiences she has had over the years with God. This is for my next book. Yes. I am determined to push along now and finish all the books that are in my in-tray. 

Pauline and I agreed that it is so wonderful to keep pushing forwards and doing our work for the Lord.

The sky is now dark. Tomorrow the moon will be full. The day Dad died the moon was also full. Everything at the moment reminds me of him. I know, though, that this is part of life. I have no doubt at all that you have experienced loss too. And if, like me, you are going through a bereavement, just keep putting yourself into the hands of Jesus and He will see you through. As He said in the Sermon on the Mount:

"Blessed are those who mourn: they shall be comforted." 

Wishing you a peaceful night.

Love and blessings
